a hash is a brilliant way to use up leftover potatoes + veggies.

We love it for breakfast topped with an egg + with a sprinkling of curry powder to make it tingle on the tongue!

    • 500 g/1 lb 2 oz cooked potatoes, cubed

    1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the potatoes + onion + cook for 10 minutes, stirring often, until the onion has softened + the potatoes are light golden.
    2. Add the sprouts or cabbage, garlic, halloumi, curry powder + cumin, if using, stir until combined, then cook for another 5 minutes, turning regularly, until everything is heated through.
    3. If serving topped with a fried egg, put the hash in the oven (set to a low temperature) to keep warm, covering it with a plate to stop it drying out. Heat enough oil to cover the base of the frying pan + fry the eggs as you like them, then serve on top of the hash.
    Fun for little ones

    Sensory fun

    Pop your baby in a high chair while you’re cooking so they can hear the popping + sizzling of the frying potatoes + onion. Let them explore whole raw veg using all their senses + show them how they look when sliced up!

    Swap this for that

    Swap this for that

    Swap the halloumi for butter beans + leave the eggs out to make it vegan! Swap the curry powder for smoked paprika to reduce the heat. Or swap the fried eggs for scrambled if your little one is under 10 months.

    Yummy for little ones

    Sensory tip

    Halloumi has a wonderful bouncy feel + is the perfect texture for little fingers to explore. The smells of the spices will waft across the kitchen to sniff as you’re cooking. Mmmmm!
